Row Your Own Boat
Row your own boat on Main Salmon or Lower Salmon!
Not your lucky year in the river permit lotteries? Do you have whitewater experience?
We cover food and equipment, so you can show up and have a great time.
We can't allow this for everyone and we may decline requests based on experience and qualifications.
Our trips move at a fast pace. While rowing, our guides typically don't pull (upstream ferry) for navigation, but rather push (downstream ferry) to maintain momentum. This allows more time at fun, interesting stops along the way. We've had issues in the past with rowers being unable to keep up. This affects the quality of the trip for all.
Can I carry passengers?
No. Only guides licensed by IOGA (Idaho Outfitters and Guides Association) can legally carry passengers on commercial trips.
What boats are provided?
14-16ft raft or a Sabertooth Cataraft. Center frame rowing setup with throw rope, straps and other needed equipment is provided.
Can I bring my own raft?
Possibly. You will need to have required safety and repair equipment.
Can I leave camp early and go at my own pace?
No. You must stay with the group.
How do I know if this is for me?
Give us a call and we would be happy to discuss options.
